Eds how are we doing on the Ahmed Musa Case.

HabeshaSaint

{Ed002's Note - There has not been an offer from Southampton but there is interest.}

Saw we were linked with Vincente Iborra is there anything solid in this eds
i really think the guy is exactly what we need in our midfield only problem for the board might be he's 28 so can't sell him with a profit when he gets good.

Just saw that Juventus have offered us Simone Zaza in swap deal for pelle +3m n i'd take that all day! Not only Zaza is a great striker but also young (24) and also Wijnaldum is being linked with roma for around 12m any chance we could hijack that deal?

Highly unlikely as the want 19m.


2.) 28 May 2016 07:23:36
I saw the same runour which was Pelle plus 4m I think. Can't see Pelle being worth 15m tho.


3.) 28 May 2016 12:38:25
They want him to be a backup so its hard to find a player whith his qualities to be a backup at juve n he wants to go back to his homeland so probably not worth 15m bt still I think the deal could happen.

Wanyama is set to be offered an improved contract and Roko made it clear to the board they need to keep their star player if they want to keep him n I don't think Vvd's contract means anything more than that vvd will stay n I don't think we could do much about mane leaving if he wants it because the interest on him is high n I can see pelle moving to the Seri A n we could do with a younger version of him (bas dost)

I disagree with mane, he is very inconsistent. He actually hasn't had a great season. Yes granted he is playing well now but he went missing half way through the season. I'd say he'll be here another year before making a move if he does get his move that is. I only say that because yes he can change a game but its to inconsistent top clubs will want to see him perform on a consistent basis, he has the talent eye for goal and that pace to beat a player i'd say for him and it think a lot of people will agree (even if he wants a move) he should stay for a few more years perform on a consistent level and then leave. Having said that from what I hear he's happy here, was annoyed at lack of playing time from like Jan - March but is a lot happier now. I think Koeman has made an impression on him but then again I could be wrong.


2.) 14 May 2016 08:51:57
I think if we can minimise the outgoings to Wanyama and Pelle we could have a great season next season. Oriel is more than capable of stepping into wanyamas shoes and with additional cover at centre back and maybe left back and a marquee striker we will be laughing.

We're being linked with Adem lijajic he seems like an exciting prospect once he regains his form but i'm not sure how much he is going to cost.

HabeshaSaint

1.) 15 May 2016 00:29:04
We'd probably be looking at between £10-12 million for him I would think. Not sure exactly what else he'd offer that we don't already have though. He's more of a creator than a scorer and we've already got Tadić for that and I don't think he'd be happy sitting on the bench after coming from Inter if he did move. We need a more attacking goal threat from our midfield, someone a bit more like Mané (although some added consistency wouldn't hurt) .

Id like us to go for Gignac as he is french but I think he already turned us down last year before moving to Tigres.

Now I am NOT! saying the club is doing bad n I am NOT! saying we need to splash the cash but with us having 5 competitions to play in next season and having lost 3 first team stars n rumors suggesting we are only going to buy a backup Gk and a rb its pretty hard to stay calm and don't tell me to trust the board because I trust the board when they replace our stars with gems n make profits not when they're going to wing a possibly 50+ games season with two injury prone strikers! N dot get me wrong I really love Austin and Jrod but i'm pretty sure they're going to get injured soon so then what huh? Is les going to score our goals?! N also I believe we should see our youth in the JPT n league Cup
N remember it just takes one bad year to ruin what we have achieved over the last couple of years
Thinking Positive is great but we also need to be realistic
Even if a guy misses you with a knife 3 times u still wouldn't want him to take a fourth shot.

Did I miss a statement saying we are only in for a GK and RB? Same story every summer. The female dogs get bit by the heat and then by their own words. Look around the PL, silly money neither buys the right player (look at our outs vs ins) nor does it buy top 4 or the title. Chelsea. United. City. Leicester.


2.) 23 Jul 2016 09:48:32
I've never actually heard straight from the mouths of reed or puel that we're ONLY going after two back up players. Not even a quote. Just your regular "it is understood that" stuff. If anyone has actual proof I would like to see it.


3.) 23 Jul 2016 17:43:01
Look at our transfer history since 2009, the vast majority of what we do ends up being towards the end of the window or even in the final few hours. We've still got over a month to bring players in and I suspect this'll be a huge season for bringing youth through and playing them in at least the league cup.

Now isn't the time to panic. 22:59 on the 31st of August having still not brought anyone in would be however.


4.) 24 Jul 2016 09:51:04
Loving the faith in our medical team. Jay rod has had 2 bad injuries in the space of a year and Is back in full training . Austin has had a few minor muscle injuries . I'm glad you can predict the future injuries of both these players . Maybe you can let the club know when they are going to happen so they can plan for it 👍🏼👍🏼. 7 weeks left of the transfer window and so close to the end of the euros, I don't think it's time to be chasing a quality striker just yet do you?


 

 

06 Jul 2016 20:05:19
Its funny how people are saying we need 2 or 3 players. I say we need about 6 or 7 because we needed to add on last years squad even before we lost mane wanyama n juanmi because of europe so with replacements for the departed n other depth additions we need something like this

A Decent Winger as a mane replacement
Backup winger (Redmond) already signed
Backup cb
A decent Rb Martina n Cedric to be backups
A backup Gk
A Decent Dmf I like Romeu but still we need one more
And a #10.

HabeshaSaint

1.) 06 Jul 2016 22:51:24
Yes we need another winger or no 10 we have tadic, jrod and redmond and davis as a no10 for the wings but agree we need another as I don't think jrod has the legs for it anymore but still useful as a striker. Also yes we need another cb. I think cedric is going to be a quality rb with martina as cover. Dm we have romeu, clasie, jwp and reed who I personally rate highly. This leaves us with a squad as it stands of:
Gk- forster and gazza (maybe need a better back up)
Rb- cedric and cuco
Cb- fonte, vvd, yoshi, gardos and stephens
Lb- bertrand and targett
Dm- clasie, romeu, jwp and reed
Wings- redmond, tadic and jrod
Am- davis, jwp, jrod? (Agree another needed that can also play out wide
St- long, austin, pelle, jrod

We can only play 11 and have 7 on the bench think if we keep the players we have we might bring in 3 maybe 4 but who gets left out?


2.) 06 Jul 2016 23:35:28
I see there u mentioned jrod in 3 positions but as much as i'd love for him to cover us in those positions him n austin will be out injured on day 1.


3.) 07 Jul 2016 06:58:16
Yes I have because when I saw him play last year yes he looked sharp but seemed to have lost a yard of pace so I couldn't say where his best position would b now and some players can play in more thsn 1 position.

Eds what are the chances of us beating leicester to Ahmed musa.

Yea please the guy is a nightmare to defenses n yes he is in fact faster than mane and in my opinion he the perfect replacement for mane and the rumours linking us to ben arfa and him are the only things keeping me calm and trust the board its okay if ben arfa doesn't join but we NEED this guy! If we don't sign him i'd be really disappointed.

Yeah I don't think Ben Arfa is a possibility but still any good players who could look for a reunion? Even from other previous clubs.

Well we have been linked with Hal Robson Kanu a few months back and yea he would be a fantastic signing considering we need depth in our squad and who knows he might end up being a solid starter.

No doubt fonte is a great player and won't decline now but let's remember we have europa league fixtures so I don't think gardos will be enough.

Lol but ben arfa is a free agent and dost would cost about 10 and berahino about 5 and idk about iborra but I think 20 for Musa is worth it.
